Default Fitting tune for a band members wedding

I am looking for suggestions for a tune to be played for the groom (who is a fellow member of the fire department band) during the reception.

We would like to dedicate a tune to him.

Any ideas?

Smith's a Gallant Fireman? But why not just ask him what he would like?

If you're looking for a slow air New York's Bravest isn't bad (Sandy St. James had it comissioned, but it is a slow air and may not be wedding appropriate).

I like The Smith's a Gallant Fireman as Alan said. Awesome tune.

There's a midi link to what it sounds like.

Since you're asking I guess you never heard of the Fireman March or sometimes just called Fireman's a 2 part 4/4. There is also another one we were just given called the Firefighter which is a 4 part 4/4. Both are very nice marches.

There's a nice little 2 part jig called "The Piper's Wedding" in one of David Glen's collections. I imagine one of the online indices could cite you to it pretty quickly.

Cheers,
